Yea, FalGRunt, be careful here. That is too much $$. We understand you're just learning. you say you can PEEL the rust off the frame...well rust on body panels bubbles through the thin sheetmetal, but if you can peel rust, not just mud or paint flakes or something, off the frame, then you have me worried for sure.
Let's put it this way, if the rust is bad enough, and depending on where you live, it will only get worse. so sooner or later you will be shopping for a frame and/or body to put your engine, axles under. And you don't really even know at this point if those are worth anything.
I used to be an auto broker. you are thinking with your heart, and you like this truck and that's it. That makes you a sucker if you're not careful.
